Prediction: Brentford vs Valencia – Football Predictions

Check out our analysis, team news, line-ups and see our prediction for this match.

In the last friendly match before the Premier League season starts next week, newcomers Brentford will host the La Liga outfit Valencia on Saturday.

Thomas Frank‘s men will return to life next Friday when the league kicks off with a top division clash against Arsenal. Saturday’s game is their last chance to win on the board to build confidence.


Prediction for this match

After several years of battling for the top of the championship, Brentford finally confirmed his return to the English top flight last season.

Thomas Frank’s men finished second behind Norwich City for much of the season, but a subsequent slump in form left them falling behind Watford, which meant the Bees had to go through the playoffs again.

The Londoners went two goals behind to beat AFC Bournemouth 3-2 over two games in the semifinals of the 2019/20 season.

This was not repeated, however, as the Bees dominated Swansea City throughout, with early goals from Ivan Toney and Emiliano Marcondes fired them to a 2-0 win and sealed promotion to the Premier League.

Brentford’s pre-season has produced quite mixed results, starting with wins over AFC Wimbledon, Boreham Wood and Watford to get back into the groove of last season.

They would then impress at Old Trafford in a 2-2 draw with Manchester United before they Said Benrahma Tor gave West Ham United their first pre-season loss.

Saturday offers Frank’s side a good opportunity to recover from this narrow defeat and enter the difficult opening on Friday with a win, although it will certainly be another tough test against a Valencia team with a strong pre-season.

Last season was certainly a difficult one for Valencia as financial problems forced them to sell several key players as the club hierarchy began to run down assets.

After finishing ninth and two consecutive fourths before that, Los Che was unable to put any serious pressure on the top eight Javi Gracia Dismissed in early May when Valencia languished in the bottom half.

It was eventually followed by a 13th place as they finished just nine points above the drop zone and a new manager Jose Bordalas will be interested in making changes to bring the team back to the battle for European football.

Their preparation efforts have certainly been positive as Los Che beat Europa League winners Villarreal 3-2 before taking wins over Atromitos and Cartagena FC.

Losing 2-0 at Real Zaragoza, Bordalas’ side recovered with a 1-0 derby win against local rivals Levante before they were 0-0 on penalties against Italian giants AC Milan the last time that Valencia won.

In their final game before the season opener next week against Getafe, they aim to gain momentum with another particularly impressive win when they face their Premier League opponents.

Since the game on Saturday is the last opportunity to turn the team freely in the pre-season, Frank will likely be heading for his strongest XI before the decisive duel next week.

Kristoffer Ajer should get the chance to start next door Ethan Pinnock and Pontus Janssonafter coming from Celtic that summer.

Meanwhile, Ivan Toney is likely to take the lead after setting a championship record of 31 goals in 45 league games and 10 assists last season.

Given the ongoing financial situation, Valencia were once again calm in this summer’s transfer window, with the only high-ranking player being the defender Omar Alderete Loan from Hertha Berlin.

Instead, you will feel the effects of multiple exits as a seasoned striker Kevin Gameiro and center-back Eliaquim Mangala both on free transfers while Patrick CutroneThe loan in Spain ended at the end of last season.

Los Che also has heavily rotated players during the pre-season, but on Saturday there should be a shift to the strongest XI before the first league game, which gives the key players one last chance to train.

However, you will still get by without a midfielder Carlos Solerstaying in Tokyo with the Spanish Olympic team.

Brentford possible starting line-up:
Raya; Jansson, Pinnock, Ajer; Roerslev, Janelt, Baptiste, Henry; Mbeumo, Toney, Canos

Valencia possible starting line-up:
Mamardashvili; Correia, Alderete, Diakhaby, Guillamon, Gaya; Burlamaqui, Esquerdo; Cheryshev, Gomez, Guedes

Probability: Brentford 1-1 Valencia

With both sides expected to reach their full strength, the intensity may not be the highest as the teams try to avoid injury and we give them a pretty even playing field.

We see Valencia arrive at the start of the season with a laudable draw from London in a game that is about preparing the two squads for intense league campaigns.
